Welcome and Namaste!
I am so excited to share with you the beauty of yoga, Ayurveda, and holistic wellness! These time-tested, effective Ancient traditions can create a healthier physical, mental and emotional foundation with which to live your best life. Now, who couldn't benefit from that?
When I was 25 years old, I co-founded a fabulous non-profit in the field of the arts to help individuals with developmental and physical challenges. Filled with youth, optimism and energy, I ran full speed ahead for over a decade, keeping a pace that was much like a sprinter/runner…GO! GO! GO! and DO MORE! MORE! MORE! Well, I WENT! WENT! WENT! and then I crashed, and crashed, HARD! I ended up having Adrenal Fatigue at 34 years old. I was challenged with maintaining my pregnancies and was utterly exhausted. I looked 15 years older than I should have and I had lost my spark. I had to examine my life; how I was living and why I was pushing myself so hard. There was a great deal of soul-searching (which can be amazingly profound and painful all at the same time), reflection and much-needed rest.
Ever since that experience, it has been my personal quest to find a way to bring and maintain harmony into my own life and into the lives of others. In my quest for mental and physical health, I discovered a love and passion for yoga, Ayurveda, Bodywork and meditation that allowed me to study with some of the most brilliant minds in these fields, I was empowered and blessed. Together we can explore the principles of Ayurveda that have helped millions of people, to bring more peace, health, and inner joy into their own lives. In our extremely fast-paced, high stressed lives, we are pushing ourselves into sickness and imbalance. It is time to tune into your body and mind! It speaks to you each and every day and we must listen. The answers lie within.
Are you suffering from physical tension and tightness? Dealing with extreme fatigue and mental sluggishness? Is digestion causing Acid Reflux, cramping and gas pain? Are you stiff and have joint pain? Are you having trouble staying asleep? What drives you? Who drives you? These are just a few questions that we can explore.
Ayurveda is an ancient system of life (ayur) and knowledge (veda) arising in India thousands of years ago. In Ayurvedic philosophy, all of creation is made up of the five essential elements: ether, air, fire, water, and earth. Each person is made up of a combination of these elements, establishing their basic constitution or dosha. This is the level on which Ayurvedic healing works. When the elements are strong and balanced within a person, they support healthy functioning on the physiological level. Illnesses are regarded as aggravations in the human body. An Ayurvedic practitioner will look to see what part of an individual’s life is creating the imbalance, be it diet, lifestyle, work, emotional states, etc. Check out my services for massage therapy too, lots to chose from!
I have been truly successful in my private practice in Black Mountain, N.C. and people from all areas of Asheville, Boone, Marion, and Morganton come to see me for Yoga, Deep Tissue Massage, Relaxation/Hot Stone, Cupping, Marma Therapy, Abhyanga Massage and Ayurvedic Consultations. I have many clients who come in from other states to receive my healing touch and I am thankful each and every day for my success! My extensive knowledge in various modalities makes my massages and Ayurvedic services one of a kind and something not to be missed!
